FROM THIS EPISODE

how_fiction_works.jpgHow Fiction Works (Farrar, Straus & Giroux)
This conversation is characterized by indirection. Critic James Wood seems to be responding to accusations made against him by other reviewers. The ever-polite Bookworm gently interrogates, and the vast terrain of fiction is traversed. Wood believes (famously) in realism. He is (famously) against nihilism. The ever-polite Bookworm declines comment.
